Topic: Bridal couple

Action: The bridal couple poses for a formal portrait, a very unusual topic even for situations re-created in the studio. This one is probably authentic, which means the man had to be closely connected with the photographer.

Image Particulars: The image is from about 1880. The stains on the bridegoom’s face are a printing accident. The backdrop text reads “double happiness.” The ornate frame around the image shows pseudo-Chinese motifs.
